Mickey,

You're referring to the 600x600 requirement for submissions or wondering why michael's last picture is 640 pixels high? We just need a size close to that box to make sure the picture can be evaluated and doesn't need resizing for our sorting process.

Asher

  • Your sets of images that will fit into a 1000 x1000 pixels box. Link or attachment for my download is fine. So that's what I have to submit by May 1st. We can add more pictures later.

  • Your resumé: can upgrade that later. Should have some artist statement, the kind of work you like and motivations and any exhibits, shows, publications uses of your pictures or where posted online. Doesn't need to be any proof you're an established artist or a successful commercial photographer, (valid if true), but a documentation that you are a committed human being who expresses via photography according to your needs, style and wishes. No pretenses are needed. Selected pictures will speak for themselves, within the context of the body of work you submit and then in the framework of the entire exhibit.

  • Video can also be included. (Note Romain Claris). Link or attachment for my download is fine.

Asher,
Have you come to a final conclusion of what the theme would be? Is it spaces Human's make such as the amazing buildings that people have posted, or can it be smaller, more urban vignette type of images?

It's a wide interpretation of "spaces". Limits to them for us, by us. Our mark on spaces. Spaces mark on us, personal and public, real and imagined.

A summary of something I've been thinking about recently - a complement to my earlier winter sun series. (Thinking of calling it summer rain). More details later when my brain decides to work again for words.

Really appreciate you putting all of this together Asher.

Sam

This is the most serious thing I've ever seen you post Tom, and I must say I'm a little scared by that.

It's nice to wander through these - have you been saving them up for a while?

Sam

Thumbs up

I have miscalculated how much time I would spend to prepare and mail the files. I missed that schedule for almost 2 hours...

In fact, when I wrote the other post it was just a few minutes after mid-night and I had to go and sleep...

I just sent the files a few minutes ago and I am already preparing the necessary resumé.

I can hardly wait !

Thank you again Asher

Well, Asher, here is a concept for your spaces theme for your consideration:

Urban Vignettes:

The aim of this set of works is to show how we have a need to inject beauty into our common, everyday lives and living areas that express our individuality. We create personal spaces that engage the senses, the imagination and the spirit.
-----
If chosen, images would be printed by me and professionally matted. Images are typically 11 x 17 matted to approx 20 x 24. Obviously the top one, would be matted to 24 wide but not have the same height as the rest.
------


Fall in the Garden



Hydrangeas



The Strawberry Basket



Three Bikes



Bit of Country



Brick-a-Brack

Thanks again to everyone, for your offerings, comments and encouragement. We have over 400 pictures submitted and if our collection is chosen for the November's exhibition, then we'd get about 65-70 of these representing us. So there's still a long way to go before any pictures are accepted for this showing. I'll submit our best/most appropriate 100 or so and we'll go from there. We have a strong submission. Art is still a competitive activity, so let's wish for good fortune as well!

We'll know June the 1st!

Asher
